Alex focused his energy to his palms and fired two energy beams towards one of the militia groups. [b "The tanks are coming!"] he spotted the large gunner machines coming up behind the soldiers.
Ari ducked behind a tree and fired back with her guns until running out of ammo.
It wasn't long before the enemies found them, open firing with their rifles. [b "Use the trees!"] Alex ducked for cover, worried that their team would be caught in the crossfire.
[b "Any time now, Azazel,"] he grumbled under his breath, waiting for the tanks to be disabled.
"either way, we still need to be careful." She said and sighed. "Come on." She started to walk to the next village quickly.
The atmosphere of the group was a little more tense than the day before. They hadn't had the threat of tanks and heavy machinery hanging over them yesterday, and the nerves showed in their somber faces.
[b "Scott's hero complex will make sure that he does as he's told,"] Alex reassured Ari and Hank. [b "With Azazel and Kurt hopping in and out of there, they should be disabled quickly."]
Ari stretched watching and looked at the others that remained. "Let's start moving out."
Alex glanced over to Scott, looking less grumpy and more tired than usual. [b "I'll give him the option."]
Jean agreed with the idea, after hearing it directly from him. Scott needed a little more push. [i "Why should I help her?"]
[b "You're not helping her. You're stopping innocent people from being blown to bits by those tanks. If we do nothing, they'll be slaughtered,"] Alex countered.
[i "Fine. I'm going,"] Scott dropped his crossed arms to his sides and followed after Kurt and Azazel.
"she shook her head and paused thinking for a moment, your brother can take out some of the tanks with his visor, he can go with them or stay at the front lines with us."
He nodded. [b "Okay. You've got Azazel and Kurt on the tanks,"] his eyes went wide. [b "What if we had Logan disable the tank cannons? His claws can cut right through them, and we won't have to worry about them firing at us out of panic."]
"it's a bigger group of soldiers than in the previous village... We have to be careful, no matter what." She said and looked up at him. "We have to have a backup plan for everything."
[b "How rough do you think this is about to get?"] Alex asked her quietly, not wanting anyone to overhear and get worried.
"if they try to capture you two, you have the best chance to escape. Azazel, you know what to do if the worst happens and most of us gets captured, but I will tell you again, go back to my castle and get a rescue party together as quickly as possible, have Jasper help you." She said reminding him.
[i "Ja, Frauleine,"] Kurt appeared beside them. [i "I am happy to help in whatever way I can."]
Alex clapped him on the shoulder in gratitude. [b "Stick close to Azazel and follow his command. We can't let our fuzzy blue elf get into too much trouble."]
She smiled up at Azazel and gave him a hug. "Just be careful, okay? If you need to take Kurt with you as back up then do so."
[i "As you command, Your Highness,"] he bowed.
[b "Keep them away from civilians, if there is a village nearby. We can handle being a target, but they won't be able to defend themselves against tanks,"] Alex added.
